Somerleyton Primary School

School Allotment

The children of Somerleyton Primary are proud tenants of a plot within our community allotments. This area benefits many areas of our curriculum; from Science to DT, Maths to PSHE. Spending time together outdoors and contributing to a community asset are vital aspects of our school wellness.

Each class is takes ownership of their own bed supported by our Gardening Club team on Thursday lunchtimes.

Projects in 2022-23 have included:
  • Installing a Large Water Container to help children water plats independently. 
  • Creating a 'birds-eye' map scale map of the allotment and its dimensions.
  • Planting black currents, rhubarb, carrots, potatoes, radishes and beans!
